Abstract: The problem of modeling the spectral energy distribution (SED) of B[e] supergiants (sgB[e]) is addressed. We suggest that the disks around sgB[e] are neutral in hydrogen at or close to the stellar surface, restricting the free-free (ff) and free-bound (fb) emission to the polar wind. Preliminary results for the LMC sgB[e] R126 are in agreement with such a scenario and deliver a density contrast of ρequator/ρpole ≈ 120, typical for sgB[e].
